Energy Cost of Engine Idling part of SISL:2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
This is an open-ended but elementary modeling exercise about idling energy behaviors and impacts.
How much energy do you save by doubling insulation? part of SISL:2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Students will be provided the governing equation for steady state heat transfer across a surface. They will use that equation to explore the effect of changing the insulation value on the amount of energy used.
Solar panel statistical tests part of SISL:2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
In this activity, students will determine whether there is a statistically significant difference in the number of watts of power produced on individual solar panels at Bryn Mawr College.
Modeling the carbon cycle of the anthropocene part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Students use an Excel sheet to complete forward and inverse models of changes in carbon distribution between atmosphere, ocean and the biosphere from 1751 to the present and several centuries into the future. The model is given as a mostly complete package, into which students input emissions data in various sensitivity tests.
An integrated view of the Glendale Landscape part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
Kaye Savage, Wofford College
Students work in groups to develop posters that communicate their concept of landscape following several field labs (soils, sediment analysis, river discharge, vegetation survey, aquatic life) at one location. They ...
Powering the Future part of Cutting Edge:Energy:Energy Activities
This paper introduces a card exercise which allows students to make decisions about how best to provide electrical power to their country. Students must make choices between renewable and non-renewable electricity ...
Hydrogeology Research Project part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
Tara Kulkarni, Norwich University
This activity is for students to work in teams (2012) or individually (2013) to develop a project (such as a physical or numerical model), survey based research, case study, technical briefs on a remediation ...
Should I Unplug? part of SISL:2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Short Description goes here: Short DescriptionThis section should be a distillation of the summary above. This description will be displayed in search returns. The optimal length for this description is on the order of 1-2 sentences. Short Description goes here:
One day it is too hot and other days it is too cold. Do we need to replace the HVAC system? part of SISL:2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
This project will allow students to create a mathematical model to help in making decision about replacing HVAC units on a large scale.
The Costs of Your Commute: Your Money, Your Time, and the Earth part of SISL:2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
This activity has students investigate their own cost, CO2 output, and time for commuting. They then compare their commute to an environmentally conscious alternative by using comparable metrics.
The Lifestyle Project part of Cutting Edge:Public Policy:Activities
Karin Kirk, Carleton College
This three-week project challenges students to learn about environmental alternatives by modifying their own lifestyles. Throughout the project, students reduce their impacts on the environment by changing the way ...
Energy Policy part of Cutting Edge:Public Policy:Activities
Michael Phillips, Illinois Valley Community College
Students research and make recommendations regarding the petroleum energy policy of the U.S. with respect to other countries.
The Lifestyle Project part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Experience-Based Environmental Projects
Karin Kirk, Montana State University/SERC and John J. Thomas, Skidmore College
This three-week project challenges students to learn about environmental alternatives by modifying their own lifestyles. Throughout the project, students reduce their impacts on the environment by changing the way in which they live from day to day.

Looking for Gas Layers in Anadarko Basin, Oklahoma part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
Constantin Cranganu, CUNY Brooklyn College
The students perform a well log analysis in order to discover gas-bearing layers in a sedimentary basin (Anadarko)
Power Generation Town Council part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an opportunity for students to explore civil government and to present what they have learned about electric power generation in a persuasive manner
Environmental Footprint part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Christina Gallup, University of Minnesota-Duluth
This activity has students do a web-based environmental footprint quiz and integrate their results into a class mean. The students compare their results by creating a bar graph and do some simple calculations to see how much of the Earth just the population of the US requires.
Environment and the Earth Class part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Service Learning:Examples
Compiled by Suzanne Savanick, Science Education Resource Center. Based on Bixby et al. (2003), Ecology on Campus: Service Learning in Introductory Environmental Courses, Journal of College Science Teaching, v. 32, n.5, o, 327-331.
The Environment and the Earth class at the University of South Carolina participated in a campus environmental service-learning project where students collected data lighting, water fixtures, recycling bins, and trash in five academic buildings.
